I'm still going thru AT withdrawls,battling inside myself feeling like I'm not doing enough(of what I'm not sure, for the ASPNC for Pam for myself ?) but a hike last Sunday with my friend Gary up to Mt Jackson at least got me back on tha AT for a short while. It was a beautuful day, but there is still 5-6 feet of snowpack still in some places(checkout the blase on the tree in the picture, about 8in. off the snow), it made for some tough walking in some places cause your actually walking up in the trees.
Pam and I are going Damascus for the Trail Days celebration, were going to meet up with Tequila John, Tillerman and Tree + hopefully many other thru hikers from last year and also many hiking this year will be there!! It's going to be a blast.
